U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team to Play in Pittsburgh

It will be the first stop after the team finishes the World Cup competition.

Big news for soccer fans — which began with this tweet Wednesday from Pine-Richland’s Meghan Klingenberg: The U.S. Women’s National Team will play its first post-Women’s World Cup match at Heinz Field.
